San Mateo County to Advance to California’s Yellow Tier; County Health Aligns Mask Guidelines with State

San Mateo County to Advance to California’s Yellow Tier; County Health Aligns Mask Guidelines with State

"The state of California today announced that, beginning Wednesday, May 12, a multitude of indoor businesses and activities in San Mateo County can reopen or expand as the risk from COVID-19 is 'minimal.'

The move to the state’s least restrictive yellow tier allows expanded capacity at restaurants, gyms, movie theaters, indoor businesses and a host of other operations. Bars that do not serve food can reopen indoors with a maximum capacity of 25 percent or 100 people, whichever is fewer.

This is San Mateo County’s first time in the yellow tier since the state last summer unveiled the color-coded 'Blueprint for a Safer Economy.' The advance comes six weeks before Gov. Gavin Newsom has said the entire state may fully reopen on June 15."

"The move into yellow officially takes effect Wednesday at 12:01 a.m."

"Also today, Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow has rescinded his June 17, 2020 order for social distancing guidelines and face covering requirements in favor of State guidance. The move allows San Mateo County to align with the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health. The CDPH issued its Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings on May 3, 2021."

“Real Estate is a Noble Field.”

 

Noble Fields School of Real Estate
Noble Fields School of Real Estate and Appraisal has been an active Daly City Colma Chamber member since 2007. Professor and Director Noble Fields established the school in 1985. The school is approved to operate in the State of California by the Department of Real Estate and the Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers, to provide Real Estate, Sales Agents, Broker, and Appraisal courses. With the Covid-19 pandemic the school offers both virtual and live course instruction with a live teacher.

At 10 years of age, Noble (Lee) Fields, left Oakwood, Texas, traveled with her family, on a Greyhound Bus, to Fresno, California. Noble worked in the Cotton Fields until the age of 18 when she joined the Army. I learned that Noble married at age 25 and divorced her husband as he drank. In 1974 she retired from the U.S. Army with an Honorable Discharge. She studied Law at Lincoln Law School of San Jose and East Bay Law School and graduated with a JD. Noble spoke about her education ending with “I met Dean Brown at East Bay Law school and graduated with a JD!” I learned that Noble is a Motivational Speaker for various High Schools and Colleges, an Annual Speaker at the San Francisco Mints’ February Black History Month; Past President of the California Association of Real Estate Brokers Inc.; President of the California Real Estate Education Association; elected to serve as Vice-President/Recording Secretary-North for California Real Estate Educators. Ms. Fields works with numerous organizations of higher learning for upgrades and developing information. In addition to these and other activities, Noble makes time for the San Francisco School Volunteers.

When I asked Noble to describe an obstacle she faced, she replied, “After 20 years in the United States Army, I never realized what an Obstacle was until I was prevented from dancing with a White guy at the non-commission Officer Club at Fort Mason where I stationed for 6 years. However, this did not deter me from staying in the service. You see that was Law back in the day and it had to be obeyed. My. then boyfriend, raised such a stink on the Post at the Judge Advocate Office, they sent me to Germany for 2 years. Wow, what a time I had. This was 1960 where in Oberammergau Germany the whole little town has a play about the Crucifixion of Jesus which is called “The Passion Play”. It happens every 10 years. The next showing is 2030.”

We then began talking about Real Estate. Noble said, “I fell into real estate, after Army retirement at the Presidio of San Francisco November 21, 1974, with a brass band and all. I got a job with the National Alliance of Businessmen, a federal job getting jobs for Veterans and going on television to interview people who needed jobs.”

She continued, “Then I got into real estate, big time. Made more money a cotton picker ever made. I then started a real estate school, still going strong. The education achieved from Law School afforded me on preparing contracts. I spent money on placing my photo on a billboard and was discovered by the manager of the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco. He wanted me to discuss how I became so successful. You see, when important people see things like a billboard, displaying advertising about a Real Estate School, you had to be successful.

In closing, Noble said, “I will give you an idea of what I believe Success really is. These words were given to be by Lena T. Agurs ‘Success is speaking words of praise.’”

MOONSTAR & MOONCHEF

Born in Hong Kong, Daly City Colma Chamber member since 2007, Philanthropist Daisy Li moved to Toronto where she studied restaurant management at Ryerson University and hospitality management at Oklahoma State University. In 1991, together with her husband and business partner Chef Paul Ng, they created the iconic “Moonstar” as an upscale premium seafood buffet in San Francisco and in 2006 relocated to Daly City. With the COVID-19 pandemic, they shifted gears and closed the doors of Moonstar Buffet.
Daisy shared, “It was a difficult decision for us, especially, after 30 years of successfully serving tasty meals in San Francisco and Daly City. Our lease was ending. We were worried that a buffet style restaurant was not a viable option for the near future because of COVID-19. The solution was for Moonstar Buffet to operate in partnership with their sister company, MoonChef, at 405 S. Canal St., South San Francisco, preparing meals to-go from a central kitchen. With the brand-new kitchen, I can continue to innovate with technology and offer new items and ways to help celebrate special events with quality food. This move allowed us to make the next phase of our business plan a reality, five years earlier than our business plan projected, ‘The Moonstar Charitable Organization’. This is a new 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization setup to help other non-profits fundraise, bring awareness to food waste, work with grocery stores in food donations and bring together other interested restaurants and chefs to make a difference.”
With a successful business, Daisy donates money and food back to the community. For example, Daisy donated more than 2500 turkey meals to Self Help for the Elderly Thanksgiving Luncheon, more than 1000 Christmas meals to individuals and families living in Chinatown SRO (Single Residence Room), proceeds generated from the restaurant on individual fundraising to Seton Medical Center in Daly City, Family Bridges Inc. in Oakland, and the American Red Cross. I learned that MoonChef has been providing meals to Bay Area Seniors for the past 6 years. Today, they are also participating in the economic stimulus program, set up to help restaurants stay in business by providing 3 meals a day home delivery to seniors. We then spoke about how Moonstar is navigating the BluePrint for California Economy tiers. She replied that they are providing take-out and delivery meals as dine in and gatherings are still not open. They have a dining room set up to accommodate groups in an open pop-up kitchen setting with three different dining or meeting rooms. “We plan to continue catering as more offices are open back up.”
I asked Daisy to speak about her management style and her employees. She replied, “My philosophy is to always be happy and work with a Win-Win approach. I appreciate that most my staff had been with us for 10+ and 20+ years at Moonstar.” She continued, “We are one big family. Our strength is our communication and respect for each other. That is why we have team building events, after hour events, and volunteer together. We have fun.”
Daisy concluded saying, “Even though I’m working all the time, I never feel like I’m working. That’s because I follow my passion, and that is what makes me happy. Don’t forget to let people know, we set up the Moonstar Charitable Organization to assist and support non-profits raising funds. We can host the events onsite or cater. Just ask.”

San Mateo County Moves to Orange Tier!

"I feel like the sun is rising on San Mateo County as moving to the orange tier marks that we are making a true comeback," Supervisor David J. Canepa said. "This will allow many of our retail businesses to start operating at full capacity. It means that there is no longer a substantial risk of catching COVID in this county. Now we must minimize the risk if we want to move to yellow and complete this historic comeback. That means respecting the health orders of social distancing, frequent hand washing, avoiding large crowds and most importantly wearing your masks." Read more
